Toelichting (Engels) This booklet describes water management and water distribution in the Netherlands as well as the problems related to flooding, water shortages, safety, drought and salinisation. The description of the water management system includes a short history of the geological creation of the Netherlands and an account of the interventions that took place over the centuries to protect the country from highvolume river discharges or storm tides. Land reclamation and other hydraulic engineering projects, such as the excavation of channels to the sea and the canalisation of rivers, are also briefly discussed. Also attention to water distribution, focusing on the main water system, the regional system and the interaction between them. Water distribution under normal circumstances is distinguished from water distribution in the event of flooding or water shortage. The relation with safety and salinisation is explained as well. Finally, the current bottlenecks and the problems, we can expect as a consequence of climate change and soil subsidence, are discussed
